• Serial numbers are not reset when you power the
unit off or exchange discs (newly generated
numbers are continuous on the old ones).
• If the ASCII format clip name string is longer
than 14 characters, it is displayed in the
viewfinder as the first 7 characters + x
(abbreviated) + the last 5 characters, for a total of
13 characters.
You can change the serial numbers by using
Settings >Planning Clip Name Suffix in the Disc
Menu (see page 107).
To specify user disc IDs by using

planning metadata

You can use planning metadata to define user disc
IDs which are saved in metadata files on
XDCAM discs. To define a user disc ID, specify
it as an ASCII or UTF-8 format disc name string
in the planning metadata.
Notes
• A user disc ID is set only after the recording is finished.
• User disc IDs cannot be set to the disc where another
user disc ID is already set. Use one of the following to
change the user disc ID, or delete it before starting the
operation described below.
- Software keyboard screen (see page 129)
- One of the (supplied) software applications
Disc name string format
Use a text editor to enter an ASCII string (up to
127 characters) or a UTF-8 string (up to about 42
multibyte characters) in the shaded part of the
example in the next section, "Example of disc
name specification".

You can check user-specified disc name strings in
the Disc Properties screen (see page 129), where
they appear as the user disc ID.
Note
When you create a planning metadata file, enter the
specification as a single statement with newlines at the
indicated newline positions only and spaces at the
indicated space positions only (except for spaces in the
disc name string).
To set essence mark names by using
planning metadata
You can use planning metadata to specify user-
defined names for the ShotMark0 to ShotMark 9
essence marks that correspond to the 0 to 9 keys
on a USB keyboard. When planning metadata that
contains user-defined essence mark name strings
is loaded into this unit's memory, the unit
displays those names for the essence marks that
correspond to the keys and that are recorded when
the keys are pressed.
See page 79 for more information about recording
essence marks, and see page 92 for more information
about how to load files.
Essence mark name string format
Use a text editor to enter essence mark names in
the sections indicated by shading in "Essence
mark name string example". Names can be either
in ASCII format (up to 32 characters) or UTF-8
format (up to 16 characters).
Note
If a name string contains even one non-ASCII character,
the maximum length of that string is 16 characters.
